Tips For Back To School Spending

(NC) Buying school supplies and clothes can be the biggest expense for many parents when it comes to shopping for their children. Over Labour Day weekend alone, Canadians made nearly 26 million transactions totalling almost $1.4 billion dollars in retail stores last year. How do you avoid spending a fortune? Here are three tips to help you get the most from your wallet this back-to-school season.

Spot the sales. Take advantage of every deal and coupon that comes your way. Check flyers for clearance sales, spend some time browsing online for discount promo codes, and use a comparison app to get the lowest price possible. This can save you more money than you expect.

Stick to your list. Don’t stray from your teacher’s supply list at the start of a new school year, and avoid getting distracted by unlisted items that catch your attention. As tempting as those items may be, you’ll just waste time and money. If shopping with your child, make sure they know the plan ahead of time.
